Not your usual fair......

Fresh, enthralling with more than just a hind of eastern mystersism this film is everything you thought it might be and then some. Visually it is a cornucopia of illusion and fantasy. Escapism at it's ultimate while displaying the indomitable complexities and contradictions contained in the human spirit. It is rare these days to find a film so far removed from the grinding formulated mediocrity typically turned out by tinsel-town these days.

Go see it. Leave younger kids home.

I went with my teenage son and his girl friend to see this movie. I had not read the book, but after watching the movie, I think I'll buy the book! It began slowly, and I worried that the teens would think it was boring. I had read other reviews that mentioned the film is "very religious". I didn't find that to be true. Although the lead characters had tried many different faiths in his lifetime. But it wasn't shoved down my throat in the movie. I was surprised at the ending. It really sticks with you. Makes you think. When it was over, I looked at the kids and asked "well,what did you think?" The gf loved it! My son, wants to buy it on DVD when it comes out. I really didn't expect them to understand it, but in talking in the car on the way home, they really did get it! But, I will say, my son is a deep thinker. A, not-the-norm kinda kid. He's an artist, so the cinematography appealed to him. The scenes were so beautiful at some moments. GO see it. Bring your intelligent teens.

Life of Pi = Great Visual Effects

Whether you read the book or not, this is a great movie. It is thought provoking but in the end a movie of survival. It is a conversation starter. We saw it in 3D. I think it would be good in either, but fun to see the Tiger jump out at you! The only reason I didn't rate as MUST SEE is because I think this is a movie that many will love, most will like, and some will hate. I loved it.

Simply a Must-See Movie!

Never read the book. Will definitely be doing so soon. Took my daughter and friend to see this yesterday. Wasn't sure what to expect - but we were blown away by the touching story and the visual effects. A must-see for the entire family. It was honestly phenomenal! If someone says "don't go" - don't listen. We LOVED it. You'll love it. Go see it. You won't regret it!

This movie in every way is satisfying: acting, direction, special effects, and meaning. I left the movie filled to the brim with emotion, which lingers continuously.
